Ironman New Zealand Sold Out in 13 days

The Full House sign has gone up on next year’s Ironman New Zealand only 13 days after entries were opened.

It is expected that a capacity 1500 participants will start in Taupo on March 5 next year which will be the first time in the event’s 27 year history that Ironman New Zealand has filled to capacity, let alone achieving this in only 13 days.

The unprecedented interest in the world’s original international Ironman race in New Zealand is in keeping with trends throughout the world which regularly sees Ironman events filled to capacity in North America, Europe and this year in Australia.

The initial upsurge of entries came from across the Tasman after the two Ironman races in their country filled to capacity two weeks ago, which promoted us to advise of the rush on entries.

Please note that there is no waitlist available for the event.
